Energy smart meter installation and maintenance firm MPAAS is to create 100 new engineers as annual revenues soar 315% to £3.47m.

Based in Haydock, MPASS has only been trading for three years. It works for domestic and commercial UK energy suppliers to deliver the installation and maintenance of smart meters.

There are currently more than 27m smart gas and electric meters in homes across the UK and the Government is pushing energy giants to install as many as possible.

This has been good news for firms such as MPAAS which is now projecting huge revenue growth this year to more than £22m. To facilitate this growth the firm needs to hire 100 new smart meter engineers taking its total headcount to 365.

Chief executive Jordan Benbow says he has ambitions to see headcount reach 500 over the next two to three years.

He said: “Since our launch in March 2020, we’ve experienced incredible growth. Today’s financial figures and recruitment drive illustrate just how far we’ve come in such a short space of time.

“With UK energy suppliers under increasing pressure to ramp up their smart metering roll out, the model we have created has become ever more important.

“In line with this demand, our growth ambitions remain high but to achieve them, we need highly skilled engineers able to deliver the standard and quality we’ve become known for.

“As well as running our own training programme, we are actively looking to bolster our field team both regionally and nationally.”

With a nationwide shortage of skilled smart meter engineers, MPAAS has so far invested £500,000 in local training. Its entrant programme is a 19-week  course aimed at people with no sector experience.”
